My friend we will miss you. Even though the miles kept us at a distance we were never kept apart. Thanks for introducing us to boiled peanuts, Wild Turkey, Mickey Minnie and Shamu, eating oranges right off the tree, the best beans and ham, grits and Southern friendship, and your wonderful family. You taught us how to eat crab and oysters, greet everyone with Y' all and git your act together. Thank you for the many things we shared together and welcoming us into your life. Love you always your Canadian friends Michael and Patsy.
